Hunting Season: Be aware of the hunters in the woods. Be sure that both you and your dog wear some orange.
Household Poisons: As the weather cools and the pests begin to move in, more people make use of pest control such as rat poison and insecticides. Always keep these well out of reach for any pet. People are also topping off the antifreeze in cars and other systems. Always be on the lookout for anything harmful your pet may ingest around the house.
Darkness: As the days get shorter and you have to spend time walking your best friend in the decreasing light, make use of reflective collars, leashes or a blinking light. These help make your pet more visible to you and other people.
Holiday Treats: Halloween and Thanksgiving are right around the corner. Remember to keep all candy and human food out of reach. Also make sure to keep the trashcan put away so it is not a temptation.
Fall Harvest: Make sure to pick up or restrict the access to rotting fruit and vegetables.
Weather: Be sure that your animal has a safe and warm place to go as the temperatures falls. Your pet may spend less time outside.
